side scrolling

I'm not sure when I first noticed this, does anybody else notice that when viewing threads, you have to scroll the horizontal scrollbar just a bit? I'm wondering if some recent forum update did this, or maybe since I'm using firefox 1.5. Or maybe it was like that always and I never noticed.  8)

Anybody else noticing this or got a suggestion for what I'm doing wrong?

Re: side scrolling

noticed it myself on some, tho not all, pages. think its when someone makes a wider than normal post. why it doesnt wrap i dont know.
like here: : - http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?t=16965

i made a

on a similar page someplace, and kept trying to reformat it as it made it hugely wide.

then noticed it wasnt my problem, as a guys posting further up had widened the page. my quote was just expanding to fit the page width.

Re: side scrolling

Now that you've posted here, I'm getting it on this page too. I can't remember if it was like that with just my post. Very strange....

Re: side scrolling

I'm not getting it...I've only noticed it on pages like the one Kern pointed out, but that's merely because there is no chance for it to wrap if there isn't a space in between characters.  Nothing surprising there.  What resolution/window size are you running at?

Re: side scrolling

Using firefox 1.5 here, but haven't had any of that other than when someone posts something that screws the margins.
